Another model, the random model, proposes that any cell in a malignant tumor has the potential to form a new tumor. Does the cancer stem cell hypothesis contradict this idea?

Summary Introduction

To determine: If the cancer stem cell hypothesis undercut the idea that cancers have a clonal origin, or can the two ideas be reconciled.

Introduction: Stem cells are the undifferentiated mass of cells that continue to divide until specific signals lead to their differentiation. The differentiation results in the conversion of stem cells into a specific type of cells in a cell lineage. Cancer cells also show continuous division but these cells are differentiated cells and are harmful to the body.

Explanation of Solution

According to the cancer stem cell hypothesis, cancer cells behave like normal tissues containing stem cells. Stem cells follow two pathways of cell division. The first pathway causes rapid division for cell renewal and the second pathway causes cell differentiation...
